We make it sustainable: This was our World Cleanup Day 2022!
Whether in teams around our sites or in their private surroundings: In 2022, numerous BENTELER employees around the globe got involved in cleaning up our environment. The occasion was World Cleanup Day - the world's largest waste collection campaign. This year, kilograms of waste were collected again and then disposed of properly.
The commitment to World Cleanup Day is just one of numerous initiatives in the area of sustainability at BENTELER.
18,250 days of coaching legend - We say thank you!
For us, the dream of every soccer club became true: With Helmut Timmermann, we have a coach who motivates his team to top performance for exactly 50 years. He has been part of our Steel/Tube Division since August 1, 1972, and is celebrating his 50th company anniversary this year.
Initially trained as a machinist, 20 years later instructor in our training center. Although this was planned for a limited period of time, we are all the happier today that Mr. Timmermann remained with us as an instructor. With his good instincts and a certain sensitivity for our trainees, he makes a significant contribution to ensuring that our trainees feel good. He shows this commitment not only during the training, but also otherwise. He has first-class soccer-know-how and passes this to our trainees: he coaches trainee teams and has already won numerous cups with them.
Steel production in an electric arc furnace
The main thing that comes out of our chimney is water vapor. Why? Because we produce our steel using an electric arc furnace. This type of production emits 90% less CO2 than steel production in a conventional blast furnace. How this works exactly is best explained by our steelworkers themselves. Take a look at the video.
